Hello <<First Name>>

Welcome to this week’s issue of The Teaching Space Extra. It’s an autumnal Sunday morning here in Guernsey. I’ve just enjoyed a bowl of porridge to fuel my body for the gym (next on the to-do list) and my brain for the rest of the day. What are you up to?

This Week’s Podcast

I’ve been looking forward to releasing this week’s podcast. It’s a mini audio-diary I recorded back in September when I attended the ResearchED National Conference in London.

Because I batch record the show, I am a little late sharing the episode (the only downside of batching content, really!) However, it is quite interesting to reflect on the action I have taken a few months later. Perhaps I should use audio to capture my learning more often. Here’s the episode:

ResearchED National Conference 2019 Recap

Incidentally, Guernsey is hosting a ResearchED event in April 2020. You can find more details here. Perhaps we could have a TTS meet up?

Recommended Read

If you follow me on social, or you’ve been receiving my weekly email for a while, you’ll be aware that I’m a fan of sketchnoting. Below, you’ll see my latest piece, created during an INSET day talk at the end of last month.

I’m still learning, but with every piece I do but I feel my style is developing. Capturing the talk in this way was fun because I was able to share it with the speaker and my colleagues after.

One of my favourite education podcasters, Cult of Pedagogy, shared this article from MindShift on Twitter a couple of days ago:

Why Teachers Are So Excited About the Power Of Sketchnoting

It’s definitely worth a read. Would you consider sketchnoting with your students?

Three Apps

And finally, I thought I’d share three apps I’m exploring at the moment:

Bear is hopefully a solution for when I need to write “throwaway notes” and I don’t have time to find my usual writing app and set up a sheet, name it etc. It is, I hope, going to be the digital equivalent of a random notepad in my bag (but a far nicer, more secure user experience). With a bear...

I’ve been using the app 3 Good Things for a while now for logging positive things that happened in the day. I use a separate app for logging anxiety triggers but it occurred to me that a decent journalling app would enable me to do both in the same place. I think Grid Diary might be the one.

Finally, Timeular is a time tracking device and app. Mine’s on order; I will let you know how I get on with it once I have had a chance to play. Check out their website to find out more (there’s a 50% discount available right now which is why I thought I'd give it a try). 

Have a great week; I'll be in touch soon.
